Oatmeal is a whole-grain breakfast cereal that provides protein and fiber, especially the soluble type that helps lower cholesterol. Boost calcium and protein by cooking oatmeal with milk instead of water. Add a sprinkle of wheat germ for even more fiber, nutrients and antioxidants like vitamin E. Apricots provide an outstanding source of natural antioxidant beta-carotene (vitamin A). Choose canned apricots packed in juice or light syrup to minimize added sugars. Even the cinnamon packs a natural immune-boosting antioxidant punch!

Makes 4 cups oatmeal (3 servings, 1-1/3 cup each)

Ingredients

1 ½ cups oats, quick-cooking or old-fashioned
2 ⅔ cups low-fat 1% milk
⅓ cup wheat germ
⅓ cup pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canned (or very ripe, fresh) apricots, chopped

Directions

1. Combine oats and milk in large microwave-safe bowl.

2. Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes.

3. Stir in remaining ingredients.

4. Microwave for additional 3 to 5 minutes or until oatmeal is hot and thickened throughout.
